How To Deal With This.
Our sex-and-dating columnist Julieanne Smolinski tackles an awkward topic in her latest column at GQ.com: how to handle it—what to say, what to think—when the man in your life starts crying. Click here to read the full piece. Our favorite bit is below:
On further reflection, I realized I was surrounded with weepy men. My best guy friends have dissolved like otter pups over no less than the Lost finale, or an overly fond description of a long-dead parakeet. I’ve tended to date graduates of the Nick Hornby School for Maudlin Young Men, and I deal with it poorly. I once ended perhaps one of the most fulfilling sex-only relationships of my life because the guy cried over a soccer game.
I never know what to do during these moments. I tend to view crying in its most literal sense: as fluid squirting involuntarily from an orifice, and I react accordingly. You know, like if you’d severed your femoral artery and blood began spraying everywhere. In both cases, I might offer you a tissue and go, “Don’t…do that.”
